    Default Movie recommendations please !

    Please recommend movies that you liked! I like pretty much everything! Foreign, independent, etc..

    (Watched the American classic Death of a Salesman from 1985! Dustin Hoffman played Willie Loman. He gave one of the greatest performances I have ever experienced...what a tremendous actor!..it saved the movie! Also Biff was played by a very young John Malkovich!)

    Hey, I can recommend films that can last you a lifetime. :)

    Lately I watched some great american films like Sunset Boulevard, Runaway Train, The Treasure of Sierra Madre, Klute all of which have a good pacing, storyline and acting.

    My all-time favourite movies are Ishtar & Slap Shot.
    I also really love True Stories (Talking Heads movie), Gun-Shy, The Bone Collector, Hitch and Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels & Three Bullets For A Long Gun.
    There is a special place in my heart for the Trinity movies (Terence Hill & Bud Spencer).
